When I do ifconfig, it shows wlan1 as
What in the world is this gibberish?
Note: This is showing up for my usb wifi adapter. My internal wlan0 shows up fine.
Note: I did an upgrade (Kali Linux 2016). Is the character encoding messed up? I don't know how to fix this. It wasn't showing this before. It used to be wlan1. :-(
I also can't even use my adapter because when I do:
ERROR adding monitor mode interface: command failed: Invalid argument (-22)
So there has to be a problem other than the suggested comment below saying it's the "MAC address of the adapter." It's not supposed to show the MAC address. It's supposed to show the interface name.
